Every Easter Egg and Daredevil Reference

There are several references to Daredevil in Marvel’s Spiderman, including various landmarks in Hell’s Kitchen and a few easter eggs to find or collect. While the references may just pay homage to another superhero, it’s also possible that Daredevil could appear in future titles, including Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. However, at this time there is no official indication that Daredevil will make an appearance.

Spider-Man has worked alongside Daredevil many times at different times in the comics, and it would be interesting to see how a new hero could be brought into the story in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The video game series isn’t the only form of media teasing a possible team-up, as Matt Murdock recently interacted with Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Coming Home. With the existence of various teams in the comics and the recent MCU tease, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 including Daredevil seems like the next logical step to bringing these heroes together or giving the Man Without Fear a bigger role in future Marvel projects.

There are six major references to the world of Daredevil and Matt Murdock in general, and most of them are landmarks. However, there’s also a collectible backpack that confirms that Spider-Man has already met Matt Murdock. The Daredevil backpack is the only one that directly references Spider-Man’s encounter with another superhero, though he’s clearly unaware of Matt Murdock’s alter ego. Insomniac may want to create an authentic and immersive world, but there’s always a chance that Daredevil will appear in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or other future projects.

Daredevil Ally Ben Urich is referenced in Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Reference Ben Urich Newspaper

As the story progresses in Marvel’s Spiderman, there are new Daily Bugle headlines to collect from red bins on the sidewalks, and Ben Urich’s name can be seen on many of the signature covers. Urich appears in both the Spider-Man and Daredevil comics, but is more prominent in the latter. In some storylines, Urich discovered Daredevil’s secret identity, but he refused to reveal it. Instead, he worked alongside Daredevil to take down Kingpin. Urich also attempted to expose Norman Osborn as a Green Goblin. In the end, Osborn discredited him, but Urich still fought to bring him down.

Urich has a passive role in the game as a writer for the Daily Bugle. Although he has no prominent role in the fight against the bad guys in Marvel’s Spiderman, his name can be seen under some of the main titles and in promotional material for the game. Urich’s subtle involvement may continue in the sequel with more headlines. However, since MJ works for the Daily Bugle, there’s a chance that Urich could make an actual appearance in the future. Including Ben Urich in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 could create a bridge between Spider-Man and Daredevil.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Has a Daredevil Easter Egg in a Backpack

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Reference Nelson & Murdock Card

The easiest Daredevil Easter Egg to find is the Nelson and Murdock Calling Card which can be picked up from one of the backpacks. When viewing the map on the collectibles screen, Peter Parker states that he got the map from a blind man in case Spider-Man needed a lawyer. Peter then comments on how strange it is for a blind man to know he was Spider-Man. Although the map is only part of the world-building backpacks in Marvel’s Spiderman, he establishes a connection between Spider-Man and Matt Murdock. Not only is Daredevil aware of Spider-Man’s activities, but he also actively seeks him out and offers some form of assistance.

Many Daredevil references are landmarks, but the backpack establishes a connection that has the potential to lead to a team. There are other characters that did not appear in the first title, such as Curt Connors, but they are referenced in the backpack collectibles. Connors actually appears in the post-credits scene for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, so there’s a chance that other referenced characters, like Daredevil, could also make appearances later. If not included in the sequel, Daredevil should have Insomniac’s next spin-off game after Wolverine.

Marvel’s Spider-Man includes Josie’s bar as a landmark

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Reference Josie's Bar

One of the landmarks to scan in Hell’s Kitchen is Josie’s Bar, an establishment frequently shown or referenced in Daredevil stories. Josie’s Bar appears in many Daredevil comics, and it’s also described as the haunt of Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson and Karen Page in the daredevil TV shows. There are no windows to see inside, but it’s an interesting notion to consider that at any time Matt Murdock and his companions can be inside Josie’s Bar while Spider-Man is passing by. .

Nelson and Murdock Law Firm Is in Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Reference Nelson & Murdock Office

The law firms of Nelson and Murdock are located at Marvel’s Spiderman near Josie’s Bar landmark. The doors are windowless and there is a red notice pinned to the front, presumably indicating eviction plans. However, the notice is missing from the landmark in Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The updated office also has doors with windows and decorative hanging lights.

The slight modifications made to the building in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales could be indicative of the law firm’s success, which could lead to a bigger role in town affairs for the next game. The Nelson & Murdock offices have struggled before in the comics, and it wouldn’t be unusual for them to experience a similar bout of misfortune in the Insomniac universe. However, with Miles Morales implying better times for the company, Daredevil might have one less thing to worry about.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Has The Clinton Mission Refuge As A Landmark

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Reference Clinton Mission Shelter

Clinton Mission Shelter is one of the lesser-known Daredevil landmarks, but it’s actually the building where Matt Murdock’s mother works as a nun. In one storyline, Daredevil brought an orphan to the Clinton Mission safehouse who some believed to be the Antichrist. Bullseye eventually took the child and delivered her to Mysterio, another missing character from the Marvel’s Spiderman series. While this landmark is unlikely to have any influence or be part of the next story, the inclusion of another Daredevil reference helps build a world around the superhero who could potentially make an appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Fogwell’s Gym is in Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man Every Daredevil Easter Egg & Fogwell's Gym Reference

Fogwell’s Gym is another landmark that references Daredevil’s origins. Jack Murdock, Daredevil’s father, trained at Fogwell’s Gym before he was murdered for refusing to dive in a boxing match. After being abandoned, Fogwell’s Gym eventually became a training location for Daredevil. Ben Urich also visited Fogwell’s Gym during his inquest into the death of Jack Murdock. Like Clinton Mission Shelter, Fogwell’s Gym is an easy-to-miss minor reference, but it adds more substance to Daredevil as a character in the Marvel’s Spiderman universe.

There are references to other heroes in Marvel’s Spiderman, but Daredevil definitely has the most Easter Eggs to find. Other heroes, like Black Panther and Dr. Strange, have associated landmarks to find, but they only have one reference each. Daredevil’s multiple mentions and landmarks make it easier to believe that the Hell’s Kitchen hero could appear in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. At this time, there’s no indication fans will see Daredevil in the next Insomniac game, but there’s still a chance that Matt Murdock will appear in some capacity.
